Taylored Expressions July 'Blast from the Past' Blog Hop!

"The Dog Days of Summer..."

It's that time of the month again!
Taylored Expressions  Blog Hop!
and this month's theme is "Sending You Sunshine"!

It's been SO hot these past few days, and the weather guy just said it's going to get HOTTER! Eeek! I guess we'll just be sitting around trying to stay cool :) Hence 'the dog days of summer'... hee hee!

I decided to use the "In the Park" Stamp Set...

... and my new pad of My Mind's Eye Lime Twist "Out of the Blue" and Maya Road Wooden Buttons... I tried to create a little scenery for the pup! It was such a quick and fun card to put together!
And look! I even masked the pup onto the bench! SO proud of myself for trying something new :) 

I wanted to take a sec too to show off my next card ;)
My Parents are going to Puerto Rico this weekend and they will be attending my cousins wedding and they needed a card :) Here's what I came up with using the Moka Collection's "Jack" and "Charlotte"...


Such a sweet couple!
The sentiments are on the inside ;)

Thanks for hopping by!
Enjoy the rest of your day :)
